The Event Group has got to be the best in the industry. From start to finish, they were responsive, professional, detail oriented and extremely invested in making my big day perfect. I booked this wedding planner just over two years ahead of my wedding. I had planned to interview multiple planners, but after meeting Sheila I was sold. She is classy, polished, calm and professional. She listened to my vision and understood it immediately. She is extremely experienced and gave me all the trust and confidence in her. Although I booked early, The Event Group was ready to hit the ground running. It was fun for me to start the planning ahead of schedule, and they were willing to accommodate that. They always made me feel like everything was under control, and they took care of a lot of the less glamorous aspects of wedding planning from behind the scenes. They were available to meet whenever I wanted, and they responded to emails, texts and phone calls unbelievably quickly, At the 6 month countdown mark, the planning picked up. The team thought of every detail, even things I had never considered before! They helped liaise with vendors to get me what I wanted, keep track of timelines, and even communicate with family members. They came with me to every meeting and brought photos, notes, and a clear idea of what I wanted. They even thought of new and creative ideas to make my wedding unique. My wedding day went off without a hitch. If there were any issues, I didn't know about them. I got so many glowing compliments from friends and family that not a detail was forgotten. I felt like these people became my friends and were so invested in my wedding day being all I dreamed of. I would share my wedding day with them again and would recommend them to friends and family without hesitation. Read Less

The Event Group gave my daughter the wedding of her dreams!! She chose a wedding destination that was about two hours away from where we both live. Sheila and Sara met us for every single appointment (florist,invitations, food tasting) and actually went to our wedding destination the week before to make sure everything was in order! Of course , they were also present for the entire week-end! They advised on the band, ceremony music , photographer and hair and make-up consultant! All the very best!!! I would highly recommend their services! Worth every penny!

This wedding planning group is beyond wonderful. I am the mother of the bride. My daughter lives across the country so we needed to all coordinate from a distance, as well as make many decisions during an intense working weekend. We worked with Sheila Weiner and Kate Caffrey. They are creative, organized, knowledgeable and calm under stress. They know their vendors and produced the perfect wedding for our daughter and now son-in-law. It was tasteful and also fun for all 245 of our guests....I cannot recommend them more highly.
